Beautiful aesthetic, but shameful gut renovation. If you don't want prewar details in your apartment don't buy the apartment, leave it for those who do. (Currently combining 2 prewar Art Deco apartments and keeping or reproducing all the original details.)

This apt is beautiful. And I say this a person who just put in offer on a pre-war apt because I loved the architecture. But if you look closely at the before photos, there was not that much great pre-war architecture existing in this space. There is nothing pre-war about the kitchen and bathroom. Yes, they probably could have done this easier in a post war building. But maybe they liked their home (community, neighborhood) and did not wish to lose those things.
